Simple HTTP Authentication

Post by Guest » Fri Dec 09, 2005 10:15 am

Hello,

I have created a widget that pulls an image down from a webserver.
Said webserver uses simple HTTP auth to keep prying eyes from getting to the somewhat sensitive data.

Currently I'm just pulling the image using the good ole http://username:password@blah.com.
However I'd like to put a Username and Password section on the back of the widget which requires the user to put in valid credentials before it will load the image.

Does anyone have any ideas or sample code on how to do this?

thanks
